Notes & Reviews:

"These quartets were written to be played either by a quartet or an orchestra. They were published in Paris in 1776. These are a great advance over their predecessors. Two are specifically labeled as orchestral quartets and two are called concertante quartets. (The other two are simply called quartets but specify that the highest part may be played by flute, oboe, violin, or clarinet.) They are clearly larger-scale works than his earlier string quartets. These are certainly eye opening works for modern listeners. The concertante quartets can be played as miniature concertos. These New Zealand performances have grace and beauty. The New Zealand Symphony Chamber Orchestra was founded 20 years ago by Donald Armstrong. They are a fine group. The recording is good and spacious, with good notes. I don't think I have heard any of these works before and am very pleased with this." -ARG
